CPD professionals are showcasing our skills and creating purposeful online education – now is the time for our profession to shine.  Although there are differences to consider from a design perspective, virtual experiences give us much more flexibility than ever before. Join our panelists in our next PIVOT series webinar as they share how they are focusing on new learning experiences to engage learners, how they are choosing the correct delivery for various types of content, and opportunities related to outcomes and assessment.

The Value of Small Group Distance Learning In the Context of COVID-19

Steven Haimowitz, MD, President, RealCME

Most health professional educators have faced the challenge of generating learner engagement for educational programs, either for the attendance of a live session, or participation in a distance learning activity. This challenge is intensified when the educational program requires a more extensive time commitment. We have all seen the reports with statistics on burnout levels among clinicians, compounded by the loss of autonomy, the increased workday, the extensive daily screen time, and feeling disconnected from their colleagues. Of course, all of these factors have a significant influence on participation in educational programs.

This session focuses on the experience of the Jefferson Health and Hackensack Meridian Health Systems in implementing a digital, small group, social learning educational model to generate engagement in an extensive Opioid Analgesic REMS-compliant accredited training curriculum. In this model, qualified faculty members from across the health systems invited groups of colleagues to engage with an established curriculum that immersed learners in a personalized educational experience that prioritized learner-to-learner and learner-to-group interactions. Hybrid or blended learning included asynchronous foundational materials, group leader-led live group web discussions focused on addressing areas of greatest concern, with peer-to-peer exchanges encouraged in a group collaborative task.

Although this program was planned before the COVID-19 pandemic, providing clinicians with channels for inter-disciplinary connections, peer support, and empathy is now a top priority for educators. This model, driven by the professional connections of faculty leaders, may serve as an important and innovative approach as we greatly expand the role of distance learning.

Keeping Up with a Moving Target: "Just-In-Time" medical education in the COVID-19 Era

Dean Beals, CEO, DKBmed

With contradicting evidence from global, federal, and state levels, clinicians need a reliable, up-to-date resource for emerging information. On March 18, DKBmed, the Postgraduate Institute for Medicine (PIM), the Institute for Johns Hopkins Nursing (IJHN), FreeCME, and ArcheMedX co-produced a live webcast. With very little time, no external funding, and a short window for recruitment, the program was broadcast to more than 4,500 clinicians eager for information on how to best prepare themselves for the coming pandemic.

This session will feature the key stakeholders that developed this program (and the learners that benefited) in a panel discussion about developing useful education for a range of learners on the front lines of a health emergency unlike anything that has been seen in over 100 years. We will discuss how the program came about, why the partners decided to collaborate and insights revealed by data from the enduring program powered by ArcheMedX. Following the panel, we will leave ample time for Q&A.

Keep Calm and Carry On - Planning for the Unexpected and Managing the Fallout

Ted Singer, President, PeerView Institute (PVI); Melissa Klingler, VP, Educational Program Development, PVI; Karen Tacka, PhD, VP, Grant Operations and Partnerships, PVI; Carmine DeLuca, Chief Medical Officer, PVI

Help! My keynote speaker is sick! Our ARS isn’t working in this basement!  An international pandemic is keeping everyone at home and isolated! 

Delivering a high-quality medical education activity is not a mechanical process; its success is dependent on effective preparation and coordination from many groups. But, things happen, and if a cog is broken, will your wheel still turn?  When you are rigorously process-focused, how do you still remain adaptable? 

Planning for the unexpected ensures continuing medical education will continue– even if differently – when unforeseen events occur, which means HCPs will continue to receive the education they need to optimize patient care. Contingency plans help ensure that you've always got a backup option when things go wrong or when the unexpected happens. This is not just a hypothetical good idea. Developing long-term strategies focused on back-up systems, communication solutions, and staff training, as well as short-term tactics like having a spare clean shirt on hand, can compensate for unexpected happenings and allow you and your company to shine. 

Join us for stories (including some horror stories!) and practical collaboration in this interactive session as we take on planning for the unexpected and managing the fallout. The expert panel – carefully-selected leaders in program management, content development, and budget and grants management – will provide perspectives across all phases of planning and delivery. 

Learners will come away from the session with practical solutions to common and uncommon unexpected situations, a plan for developing long- and short-term contingency plans, and information and advice for managing the repercussions of unanticipated events.
